Re: plz read

My old lady always says size doesn't matter but I think she's just trying to make me feel good.
Now, with CAI filters, size usually comes into play because of limited space where they are located. I use a K&N because that's my choice. My wheel well would only allow a filter six inches i believe, so that was my only option.
Seafoaming: You purchase two cans. One full can goes into the gas tank. The second can gets introduced into the upper intake manifold while the engine is running by sucking it up through a vacuum line. I usually put a drinking straw inside the can to make it easier. You can then place the end of the straw sticking out up to a vacuum line and let it suck it up. A simple way to do it is to pull the pcv valve out and pull it up (The Seafoam) and in through there. I use the one atop the upper intake plenum next to the throttle body. I Seafoam my upper intake at least every three thousand miles.
The difference in performance and gas mileage is just incredible. Any questions, just ask!

Re: plz read

OK, Here We Go!
This is the part of the engine where vacuum lines are located-
This is the upper intake
This is location of PCV

This the pcv valve pulled out and what is going to suck the Seafoam into the upper intake through the straw
When I soak the upper plenum, I turn the engine off while still warm, I disconnect this hose and pour couple of onzes inside to soak for 20 min and then start er up and go for a ride and gun it. It will smoke.

THAT IS IT!

It will be located on one of the two valve covers somewhere for sure.

I personally would never put it in my oil unless somehow the engine severly overheated and baked the oil inside. I just keep changing my oil and filter when it's due. Using Mobil1 extended service 5W-30 and a Mobil1 OR K&N oil filter.

Break Booster.
Add it in small amounts while a helper mans the throttle body giving it gas when it feels like it wants to stall.

Re: plz read

At what point should you consider "Seafoaming"? Obviously, my 2011 doesn't need it yet, but is it an age thing? Miles? Some other indicator?

Re: plz read

you can seafoam when ever you want. I would do it once or twice a year... they say its not good for supercharged cars thus I have never done it... but its a great way to PREVENT buildup from taking place and getting bad.

You could make it a yearly thing, like a spring time regular todo list type thing.

Interesting. So, since it is a new car, can I just simply add it to my fuel tank, or do I need to do the whole PCV treatment as Robb described?

Re: plz read

It would be just in the gas tank for you.
The 3.8L engines pull in an abundant amount of oil vapor through the pcv system. A quality catch can is a great recommendation for any Mustang. Several people make them. They make them specific to your car too. Its plug and play. Provides the catch can, hoses and tubing including a new pcv valve. Sold as kits for your particular engine.
Its the V6's that are plagued with sludge from oil vapor built up.
